Shiny Miltank Pokémon Go will be a little easier to catch as a result of the current Valentine's Day 2020 event. Here's how to find a Shiny Miltank in Pokémon Go.

The Valentine's Day event will run from 8 a.m. Feb. 14 to 10 p.m. Feb. 17 in your local time. During the event, pink-colored Pokémon will spawn more frequently. Miltank is one of the Pokemon benefitting from an increased spawn rate, and more Miltank encounters mean more chances to add a Shiny version to your Pokédex.

Shiny Miltank isn't a main attraction for the Valentine's Day event, but being able to find a lot of Miltanks will help your chances of catching a Shiny variant through the law of large numbers. According to The Silph Road, Shiny encounters during events are the same as outside of them. As a result, you can expect to find a Shiny Miltank once out of every 450 encounters.

A shiny Miltank is blue. There will also be a sparkle to denote that it is indeed a shiny, but it will be pretty obvious since it won't look anything like a normal Miltank.
